This center supports the research and development of emerging technologies, including machine learning, generative design and artificial intelligence, to reimagine how things are designed and made.

Taking design to the next level

Located in Toronto’s MaRS Discovery District, one of the world’s largest urban innovation hubs, this center is generatively designed to facilitate a collaborative community. Resident teams explore emerging technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence that will help us design and make in ways previously unimaginable.
